However, the best of the evening was the stories, speeches, songs, &c., that formed an impromptu part of the program.

Last Friday evening the home of Mr. J. M. Davis was discovered to be on fire. An alarm was sounded and the hose companies responded with alac rity.

The water was turned on and the flames, although they had gained con siderable headway, were subdued; not, however, before the contents of the house had been pretty badly charred. The loss to Mr. Davis will amount to several hundred dollars worth of fur niture, clothing and pictures. The fire probably originated from a defective stove pipe.
